A twist on newsprint - newspaper nails - avis negle - Artsy Wednesday

 
 
 
Dansk, se længere nede.
Since I already did a tutorial on how to do newspaper – or newsprint nails, I decided to do ripped, folded and partially stuck newspaper, when I saw the title of this week’s challenge in Artsy Wednesday: Newsprint!
The base color is Catrice 020 Cotton Candy At Eiffel Tower (a sheer and shiny nude), I wanted a not really white. For the print I let the newspaper soak a longer time than in my tutorial – click HERE, I ripped and folded the pieces a bit, I rolled them for a longer time and left them sitting on the nail until some of the paper stuck to the nail before I carefully removed the rest. When dry I placed tiny flowers (painted in acrylic color) on the newspaper, like someone was working with flowers on newspaper…
Finally I top coated with Seche Vite – and later with Essie Matte About You, but I don’t really know which version I prefer… 
What is your favorite - glossy or matte?
Check out what the other girls in Artsy Wednesday did in this weeks challenge
Michelle at Lab Muffin,  Alanna at Pretty Purple Polish, Holly at Hooked, Tif at Polished Genious, Lyndsey at Nails by Ms. Lizard, Sofie from Swååfie, Catrine from Unnakednails, Jessica at Beauty Gnome 
This week Melanie at Nail & Polish, didn't have the time, but she'll be back next week!
Da jeg allerede har lavet en vejledning i avispapir negle/avistryk negle, besluttede jeg at rive, folde og lade avispapiret delvist sidde fast, da denne uges udfordring var Newsprint i Artsy Wednesday!
Grundfarven er 020 Cotton Candy At Eiffel Tower (en ret gennemsigtig og skinnende nude), for jeg ville have en farve, der ikke var helt hvid. Jeg lod avispapirstykkerne ligge i blød i længere tid end i min vejledning – se den HER, jeg rev  dem lidt i stykker og bukkede dem, jeg rullede dem lidt længere tid og lod dem sidde lidt på neglene indtil det øverste lag sad fast. Derefter fjernede jeg forsigtigt resten. Da det var tørt malede jeg blomsterne med akrylfarve, for at give indtryk af, at nogen var ved at arbejde med blomster på avispapir…
Først brugte jeg Seche Vite toplak, men så blev jeg enig med mig selv om også at prøve en mat finish, så jeg lagde Essie Matte About You ovenpå.
Jeg ved ikke rigtigt hvilken version, jeg bedst kan li’ – hvad synes du??
